I often browse around Craftsy for new and interesting things to make. Recently I stumbled upon a purse pattern, the Phoebe Bag, by Becki Lambert. It’s currently (at the time of this post) a free download from Craftsy. This free version of the purse is a little small, but very adorable. She has another pattern on her Craftsy profile for the Ruby bag, a larger version of Phoebe, with variations for different closures or an outside front pocket. The Ruby pattern is $8.00, and totally worth the cost.
The fabric is part of a Michael Miller collection of Scottish Terrier print fabrics. This purse was made as a gift…and since it was so simple to make, I may be adding a few more to the workload to give as gifts.
